Our mission is to serve working families who fall below the eighty fifth percentile of low income and to provide a safe, loving and fun environment where children can socialize and learn through play.
Our curriculum includes sharing and conversation time, stories and finger plays, music and movement, learning centers, small and large muscle activities, field trips, food preparation and structured learning activities with exposure to shapes, colors, numbers and letters. The core components of this program are education and career development, character and leadership, sports, fitness and recreation, the arts, and health and life skills. We utilize the Frog Street Curriculum in all our Pre-K classes, a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that integrates intentional instruction in key developmental domains.
